Madonna's Adoption Appeal Not Yet Approved By Malawi Court

Madonna's adoption lawyer in Malawi, Alan Chinula, tells Access Hollywood that online rumors of Malawi's high court changing their tune and allowing Madonna to adopt a young girl named Mercy are, "not true at all."

Chinula said that the judges in Malawi are not happy about this report out there on the Web. Specifically he said that, "The Chief Justice is not very amused," and that, "We're very unhappy about it."

Chinula's colleagues are having a meeting with the Chief Justice later today to explain that it is a misunderstanding and nothing more than a rumor circulating in the press.

Chinula also says they are anxiously waiting for the courts to deliver the judgment, and that it could be any day. He told Access he checks in with the court clerk every day to find out if they have made a decision on the adoption.

He added that he has not spoken to Madonna about this latest report yet.

Chinula is very dismayed at this false report. He goes on to say that his staff are professionals and that they would never tell the press something like this before a decision had come down.

Chinula also handled Madonna's first adoption with David Banda, now 3.
